Singapore, May 6, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Asia's demand for fast and reliable connected services 'on-the-go' is relentless. As a result of this prevalent trend, which is seen not only in developed regions but also in emerging and rural parts of the world as well, the need for high capacity broadband and fibre broadband networks is ever-increasing. This is further fuelled by a steep increase in consumption of data and entertainment on mobile devices, with mobile data traffic in Asia Pacific expected to exceed the rest of the world by 2017[1].

The management of network infrastructure and innovative business models are an example of some of the focal issues carriers, service and content providers need to consider. Furthermore, enterprises can no longer afford to ignore this major technological shift - the convergence of big data, mobile, social media and cloud computing,

We hope that detailing the role that Ooredoo Myanmar is playing in delivering tangible change to millions of people across this beautiful country will be of great interest to summit delegates and participants," notes Ross Cormack.

Monetising fibre broadband for your business

The Asia Pacific region is seeing strong subscriber growth in fibre broadband adoption. Operators are expanding their fibre broadband coverage to meet this surge, which has been further augmented by the explosion of online gaming and Internet video streaming. This track, which takes place on the third day of CommunicAsia2014 Summit on 19 June, will see industry specialists from Alcatel-Lucent, Predictable Network Solutions, Cambridge Broadband Networks Limited (CBNL), SpiderCloud Wireless and BT Advise for Communications, congregate to discuss the opportunities and challenges of different, combined networks and how the capacity, end-user experience and the backhaul business can be enhanced.

Operator case studies

The Hong Kong Broadband Network and PT Telekomunikasi will be presenting deployment case studies in Hong Kong and Indonesia respectively. Both operators will also join Ikanos and MyRepublic in a panel discussion titled "How Can Fiber Access Networks Bring Economic Benefits to the Region, Cities and Rural Areas?"

CommunicAsia2014: Reinforcing the broadband focus

The CommunicAsia2014 Summit is held alongside CommunicAsia2014 and EnterpriseIT2014, Asia's industry event of choice for its wide showcase of products, solutions and technologies that are tied to mobility and connectivity.

The event's intrinsic relevance to the broadband value-chain is further reinforced with exhibition's presentation of turnkey solutions that contribute to the development of broadband network infrastructure, including fixed, satellite and wireless broadband. These solutions will be presented by companies who are experts in their fields, such as ADTRAN, ASSIA, Calix, FiberHome, Huawei, Hughes, Inmarsat, Intelsat, Iridium, MEASAT, PHICOMM, RAD Data Communications, Ruckus Wireless and Thuraya among others.

Exhibitor/product highlights:

- Huawei's Excellent MBB Solution

User experience is essential. Due to the mobile broadband (MBB) revenue-traffic scissor effect, the ROI (Return of Investment) is also a great concern of MBB operators and as a consequence, accurate investment is the key to success. Huawei's "Quad Color Investment" methodology will provide the necessary tools, such as the ASP (Accurate Site Planning) for operators to predict the accurate sites that can bring the highest revenue. The "Quad Color Investment" concept is a business-oriented network quality solution. By adopting this breakthrough vision, mobile operators are able to:

1. Improve network quality and user experience
2. Precisely invest their mobile network and achieve sustainable growth

- Iridium Burst(sm) & Iridium Go!(TM)

Iridium introduces the first global data broadcast services Iridium Burstsm which transmits data in powerful bursts to unlimited number of devices anywhere on Earth whether inside buildings, in-vehicle or in aircraft. Iridium Go!(TM) is industry's first portable satellite hotspot that connects to any smartphone or tablet, dramatically extending voice and data coverage for personal devices when they are out of cellular networks.

"As we prepare for the launch of Iridium NEXT in 2015, we are excited to usher in a new chapter of satellite broadband solutions. With smaller form factors, lower price points and higher throughputs than previously possible, Iridium and its partners are at the forefront of innovation in satellite broadband communications," says Bryan Hartin, Executive Vice President, sales and marketing, Iridium.

"CommunicAsia is an important venue for us because it presents an opportunity to deliver our vision to the broader Asia-Pac market. We are excited to share Iridium's latest products and innovation, including Iridium GO! which extends the reach of smartphones and tablets no matter where you are on the planet, and Iridium Burst - the world's first one-to-many global data broadcast service."

Myanmar Connect

With a mobile market that is touted to sport 6 million smartphones by 2017, Myanmar's telecommunications is getting increasingly attractive in the eyes of foreign players. Specially designed to offer an exclusive opportunity to interact with ICT enterprises from Myanmar, Myanmar Connect will allow attendees to get to know local stalwarts such as RedLink Communications, Myanmar's ICT flagship company. Vice Chairman and Co-Founder of RedLink, Mr. Thien Than Toe, will be present to share the company's latest forays in Myanmar and explore opportunities for future collaboration with participants.
